Featured Rentals Widget

The plugin offers the ability to denote any property(s) as a featured rental.   A featured rental widget is added to the widgets area of WordPress and can be dragged to any widgetized sidebar.   Featured rentals can be displayed either vertically or horizontally.  Featured rentals can be manually or automatically rotated.  Simply login to WordPress, go to the Settings Menu and then click on the "Lodgix Settings" submenu.  That will open the primary page for the Lodgix plugin settings.
